off land - rest ep [kpu092]
The debut release of off land is a marvelous collection of subdued, melancholic ambience and electronics. Things slowly start off with minimal drones, followed by shuffling beats and anomalous guitar loops, interspersed with vocal snippets. The rest flows like water, with hints of nominal piano melodies, acoustic rhythms, bells and drones sliding in and out through this elegant collection, floating off into oblivion. This is a remarkable achievement, and a stimulating listening experience.
